As per a post submitted to Blender Nation:
I’ve been teaching Blender as part of a game asset development course at the Center for Adult Education here in Melbourne, Australia, and I’ve been receiving emails enquiring about advanced training and community development.
It’s become apparent that there are quite a few Blenderheads bobbing about this city keen to establish a home.
I’m in a position where I’ll be able to secure facilities to house a monthly meeting for Blender enthusiasts in the CBD, but I need evidence of interest to support my applications.
I aim to establish a monthly summit for individuals to present papers concerning Blender project workflow and implementation, and to share Blender training with peers. Ideally these lectures would be recorded and made available to the International community by way of a centralised website.
There is a little work to be done, but for now I’d appreciate a display of interest. If you live in Melbourne and you’d like to participate in a monthly meet, please register your support by posting on this thread.
